1. Do you shop locally?

2. How much shopping do you do online?

3. Do you antique, thrift shop, or go to flea markets or yard sales?

You might be able to find a version in Trader Joes or snack store.  I'm actually not a chip and cracker person. 

They have those veggie kind in Costco too.

Oh.  Well, if you haven't already, maybe don't order that dress for summer.  It's a cotton linen lining (the beige) and poly on top (the black lace).  It's popular, but warm to wear out especially if you're going to be dancing at the wedding.  When you buy something for the wedding, post a pic here!

You can count me as the third. I frequently forget to eat when I'm home alone all day and particularly busy. It just isn't a priority. I live for my family. I live for my friends.

Thardy--beautiful dress. I love the look of full-skirted dresses, but I just can't pull it off. The fabric totally overwhelms my frame.

Yeah, that wouldn't be good. I might just wear a purple dress I bought for a communion last year. I really don't "need" to buy anything new and I have a cute pair of shoes that I bought with it too. It is good for dinner for our cruise too so if I can get a few wearings out of it, I will be happy :)

This is the shoe. The picture doesn't give it justice though.

I am right there with you RG with the way it makes me feel. That is why I try and not eat too much of it or at least to a minimum because certain things make me feel worse (potato chips are my biggest culprit).

I NEVER forget to eat though lol. I don't think it is healthy to skip meals. Breakfast of course is the most important. This morning I made an english muffin with PB, Bananas and a little honey. Very good and it filled me up until lunch.

Mainly, I don't like the idea of it.  I have always thought the eating process was rather gross.  The idea of putting something in our mouths, swallowing and digesting it is just not appealing to me.  It has to be done but it's icky.  I actually gross out at the idea of enjoying it.  I do love the creative process of cooking, but I'd rather not eat if I didn't have to.

I always eat breakfast. But I often forget lunch. I don't deliberately set out to skip it, but I do frequently forget to eat it. I don't think my health is adversely affected, a nutritionist friend once reassured that when my calories came in was far less important than WHAT was coming in.

Have you seen a dr. regarding this?

Why would she go to a doctor for it? She doesn't eat for pleasure. But she does eat. Who cares?
